Are the kids still living at home and mooching off of you, Mom & Dad? Time to give them a lesson in the “The Real World!” That is, MTV’s show of the same name. They’re doing casting calls this weekend in Tempe. This could be their chance at stardom, and YOUR chance at freedom! Find out when and where…
Here’s the press release I received. Hard to believe this show has been on for 25 seasons! Last time I watched it was 1996.

Saturday May 1 – 10AM to 5PM
SUITE 301 SKY LOUNGE

This season’s lucky roommates will get the opportunity of a lifetime when MTV hands over the keys to a new fantasy house for the show’s 25th season. “The Real World,” MTV’s longest running show, is a documentary series about a group of young people who spend five months living and working together.
So what does it take to get on the show? “We look for characters from real life; people with strong personalities who are unafraid to speak their minds,” says Jonathan Murray, Executive Producer of “The Real World.” Past seasons have been populated with cast members from diverse backgrounds, who have shared their daily experiences openly with millions of viewers. Fans of the show will remember alumni such as the irreverent Teck; Pedro, the HIV/AIDS educator; and Melissa, the hilarious firecracker from the “The Real World: New Orleans” cast.
It’s important to us that The Real World reflects the diversity of the general population. This season we’d love to include a person who is physically challenged, an individual struggling with weight issues, someone who has been affected by a natural disaster, a cast member who is a product of home or alternative schooling, a follower of a non-mainstream religion or belief system, an elite athlete, a recent graduate affected by the economic downturn, someone who is involved with goth, emo, or punk subculture, a member of a pro-abstinence organization, a young widow/widower, and an individual who wants to bring the spotlight of The Real World to a cause, condition, or social issue they care deeply about or are personally affected by.
Please note, although these qualities may give applicants an advantage in the casting process, they ARE NOT a requirement. As always, The Real World welcomes anyone with a great personality and a willingness to share their life with the world.
For those who can’t make it to the open call, applications are still being accepted via email.
